    Typical reaction - something bad happens, and plane spotters assume the police are going to come looking at them.

    Mmmmmm, lets see.... You just watched a rocket crash and EXPLODE in a thunderous BLAST, the launch pad is in flames and the smoke rising looks like a mushroom cloud, yeah I might be leaving also. The fear of the unknown after a disaster like that and in this day and age of terrorism, well I have no problem with what they did!!

    Given that the engines were Russian-made...I have to believe that there was sabotage in the manufacturing process and Russia wanted this to happen. A successful launch was carried out from Baiknour in Kazakhstan hours later.

    The engines were built by the Soviets in the 1960s for their Moon program. Some 20 years ago, they were purchased by Aerojet-Rocketdyne, modernized and refurbished, and eventually chosen for use in Antares. They are extensively tested by NASA prior to use. The Russians didn't sabotage this rocket.
